Patriot games - Peter King
Defensive Player of the Week: (tie) Buffalo defensive tackle Sam Adams and linebacker Takeo Spikes, in their first game with the defensively refurbished Bills, Adams was huge. On two straight plays in the second quarter, Adams leaped to make an interception of a Tom Brady pass, a great and athletic play by a 330-pound guy, and then Adams rumbled and stumbled 37 yards for the touchdown; then, on the ensuing New England first down, he knifed through the line to sack Brady for a nine-yard loss. Talk about impact. Spikes, thrilled to have found refuge from Cincinnati, intercepted Brady twice.
